Traveling with Tech

Over at slashdot there is story about the Chinese installing spyware on your laptop when you leave your hotel room.  It’s worse than that sometimes they mirror the whole drive.  I used to carry a cheap, disposable laptop for travel to tricky places with nothing of interest on it like encryption software which is illegal in some places.   It was simply a computer to lash up an openvpn connection back to the crib to do real work.  If you are an executive, they may even have you under video surveillance the whole time.  Just try to get your TSCM guy into the hotel room in China for a sweep.
